Tomorrow I'll be beginning a doubled 2468 diet. Doubled, because I know the original is just too low for me. I'm hoping that by making a thread and doing daily updates/weigh-ins I'll be more likely to stay on track. (and yeah fast forward a week where I've posted about my first 2 days on this diet and then mysteriously just disappeared lmao)
I've been stuck in the ol' binge/restrict cycle for months now, and I don't want this to become "just how my life is now" I want to escape, I want to suffer through one more phase of restriction, reach my UGW and then make a slow transition into maintenance, that's literally all I want in life right now... (christ how pathetic)
So yeah, the 2468 diet is interesting to me because of the slowly increasing pattern. I feel like it will allow me to overall be consuming less calories than I normally would be able to without it feeling too bad, the hope of the higher calorie days will hopefully keep me going on the lower calorie days. And to be honest with this being doubled I think the 400 calorie days are going to be the only ones where I actually might struggle a bit, otherwise 800/1200/1600 don't seem too bad. Of course I haven't even began the diet yet so who knows how things will actually play out once it get's going.
Anyway, I'm gonna go get myself a mcflurry, see you tomorrow evening.
